Puddle Dock Packs

Have you even wondered what it would be like to live in the past? Puddle Dock Packs help kids exercise their imaginations, practice fine motor skills and explore the past through a variety of hands-on projects. Through activities such weaving pot holders on a hand held loom, making marbles and ring toss games and writing with a quill pen, kids can imagine life before modern conveniences. An accompanying web page provides instructions for other historical activities, book recommendations and access to videos of roleplayers and house tours to enhance learning.
